Our church participates annually at the Loaves and Fishes community-wide outreach held at the Fairgrounds.

At the August 2022 event, we gave away 932 socks! 776 socks went to local families, and 156 socks were donated to the Share the Warmth winter warming center located in Sozo church.

Thank you to all who donated money or socks toward this ministry, and thank you to all of the other churches who participated in the event to help people in our local community!
